    Embarrassing question

    White tongue? Thrush? I'm struggling too. I think it's pretty normal because your body is in ketosis. I got a script for Thrush and it's getting better. Everyone around me seems to have the worst breath [emoji30]
  2. Totally normal. I vowed not to weigh for a full week because I knew it was common to retail lots of fluid. Try not to stress, and stay away from the scale until Friday. Please!

    Scariest part of my surgery

    That's a scare! I'm jealous that you were awake after surgery! I could not wake up. Except to dry heave!
  9. Could back pain be from having to adjust your sleep position. Try to take it easy!

    Is this flavor good?

    I second the banana being best. I like strawberry the least.
  13. I got sick of Dawson's Creek and makeup tutorials in my daily 10 hours of recovery You Tube so I started searching out food to help me down the road. I implore you, check out Fit Men Cook. He. Is. Legit!!!! And because I'm oddly emotional I cry through all the videos. You won't be disappointed!
  14. You're welcome!!!!! He's so great! Lmk if you try anything great and I'll add it to my list.
  15. Thank you thank you thank you! I LOVE this guy!
  16. Totally smooth at five days postop. Yay or nay?
  17. I'm totally going to get it! Thank you. Are they all delicious?

    Recommendations for low-fat creamy soups

    I'd like to know too! Congrats on 5 days! I'm 5 days too and this morning was the first time I got out of bed with no ab pain! 🙌🏼
  19. I know this is super old but just wanted to say I think you look great. I also think you could get a reduction to be more proportional if you choose and still have big juicy boobies! Congrats!

    Panni Surgery Denied

    I'm so sorry. Did you see you PCP for any of your issues due to extra skin? That should be fuel enough. Some insurances require the pannis to extend past the pubic bone. I would call and ask specifically why you were denied and what the requirements are, then get a new surgeon and dispute the ruling. Sorry I don't have any recommendations for your area. Hugs.
